Now you are into another ball game altogether....

...we have gate snaps, take-up snaps, soundhead snaps and those annoying snaps where the film wraps itself many times around one of the sprockets. An what about polyester stock which doesn't actually break, but has the ability to destroy gears, mechanical parts, and physically drag equipment (non-rewind systems and the like) across the projection room.

Maybe I should master a DVD of such sound effects in 5.1....

Thanks - user customisable cinema experience!
Could you record the sound of the film snapping too, for the times when the
software (or lamp) fails?

I shall forward your request to the development teams at the various
manufacturers.

I will therefore shortly be recording various 16, 35 and 70mm equipments
running various acetate and polyester stocks with both tape and cement joins
for authenticity. I may need to separately record the rhythmic tap of a
Gaumont Kalee 20 lower spoolbox drivebelt staple going over the pulley and
mix it back in. I already have a number of requests for the Philips
DP70/Norelco AA2 running with both steel and velvet gate bands, and a
variety of machinery from Simplex and Century.

Get in.

Kind Regards,
Laurence Claydon

Perhaps we could persuade the Digital Cinema Proector manufacturers to
include a background sound effect for various film projectors as an option.
I quite like the one they always use in tv programmes when they show a film
being screened.

Thanks for your interesting inputs here.

I can't argue on the technical part of this, but
when the local cinema goes digital I'll probably
stay home way more often and watch a HD DVD
instead. For me going to the cinema is more than
just watch a film, it's about the whole
atmosphere and I really like the fact that real
film is running through the projectors.

I guess many people will think that when they
show digital films in the cinema, why bother when
you can watch a digital film at home with HD
projection and surround sound? I think switching
to digital will only mean less people going to a cinema.

Have a good weekend everybody!

Rgds,
Andreas
